Logistics Analyst (Current Employee) – Sterling, VA – July 4, 2017
General Dynamics has a good reputation in the defense contracting industry. They are very competitive and therefore some of the employee perks of the old days are diminishing however that seems to be true for all large defense contractors at this time. It's hard to speak to the company's culture since I work at a program site and don't have a great deal of exposure to other company programs or corporate operations. The environment is faced paced and cut throat. Overall, this job has increased my acuity and made me a better professional.
Large Company Network, Many Resources, Decent Benefits
Cut throat management. Must look out for your own career advancement.

GDIT is a great place to advance your career. It is a relaxing place with strong ethics. Management is helpful and professional. I recommend GDIT as a great place for those looking for entry level jobs.
data entry (Former Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – September 26, 2017
The benefits are great but the atmosphere and pay compensation is HORRIBLE for the DRAMA you are put through on this job.Did not like the rotation of bidding for hours or bidding to keep your current schedule. Quality was never on the same page as one could see your graded call as great and another QC rep could see it as horrible. If you were like, it was graded with high marks; but if you were not a boot- licker, your graded calls could be down in the dumps
unqualified, unprofessional, unethical supervisors and managers
Department Lead, General Dynamics the USPS (Current Employee) – Eagan, MN – September 25, 2017
Working for USPS is always steady, with over 280 projects and only a few administrators, you will have work. Projects are always popping up and you are building new servers, troubleshooting problems and deploying code in one of the Middleware software applications you support.
Days go fast since you are always busy
Sometimes USPS management is slow with reactions when there are answers to be made.

PRINCIPAL ENGINEER, SYSTEMS (Current Employee) – Alexandria, VA – September 23, 2017
Extremely professional team-level leadership. Wonderful technical support from the company for creating and editing our deliverables to the customer. i really enjoyed the relatively relaxed work environment. Minus the stresses that come from the contracting environment, the company itself is quite pleasant and helpful. I would recommend this company to anyone seeking a solid career as a contractor in support of a myriad of DOD clients.
Benefits; professional support; professional improvements
Communication between levels could be a bit better
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS 39401 – September 23, 2017
I have been working at General Dynamics for a year now. It's a friendly work environment. It's a very relaxed causal office job. If you don't like the idea of sitting at a desk all day, then this isn't the job for you. The benefits are great. You get free health care, sick paid leave, and vacation time.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Sandy, UT – September 23, 2017
I worked their for a month and my profile for taking calls was still messed up, they blamed me for their technical calls. They ran you dry, the managers left me alone in the conference room for an hour when I needed to talk to them.
One thing they really got to me is that they laid off thousands of full time employees a few months in, removed a document that said we would be guaranteed a job for several years.
Proposal Coordinator/Production Manager (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – September 22, 2017
I worked on Government Proposals and it was all time sensitive. Therefore, it was VERY LONG hours in a short amount of time. I was a consultant so did not have benefits while working there. I can state that from what I heard benefits were excellent and paid time off was standard. The team I worked with was exceptional - very knowledgeable and professional. I would have stayed if it was a permanent position.
Great people to work with
LONG hours in a short amount of time for Proposal department
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Lynn Haven, FL – September 22, 2017
Working at general dynamics honestly was a different job for me...at general dynamics you sit and answer calls and help customers out with insurance...honestly im more of a person that likes to move around on my job ...i like to stay busy physically...great pay and good benefits though with great hrs
Very poorly managed matters who you know more than your abilities
CNC Machinist (Former Employee) – Anniston, AL – September 22, 2017
Very poorly managed. If you're a relative of someone, you're better off than anyone else. Very discriminatory to random people. Some people have it made for no real reason and others endure a hostile work environment. No real ethics at this place. Is ran worse than a McDonald's.
Pays decent and is a good place to work for some people
Very vicious and cut throat employees and management
